Don’t panic. We are fully licensed and insured professionals trained to deal with removing furniture and household items from bed bug infestations.

First let’s look at the signs of bed bug infestation. It is hard to determine an infestation based solely on bite marks or finding strange bugs. Carpet beetles are often misidentified as bed bugs which prolongs treatment so it is important to identify what bed bugs look like first:

Bed bug bites are no easier to identify so it’s easier to look for physical signs of bed bug infestation including:

    – Rusty or reddish stains on bed sheets or mattresses caused by bed bugs being crushed.
    – Dark spots which are bed bug excrement and may bleed on the fabric like a marker would.
    – Eggs and eggshells, which are tiny (about 1mm) and pale yellow skins that nymphs shed as they grow larger
    – Live bed bugs

Okay so you have bed bugs. Now’s the time to call us to get rid of those pesky bugs from your home. You could take care of the problem yourself but why go through all that stress when you can just leave it to the professionals instead.

1. Whole Room Heat Treatments

Bed bugs and bed bug eggs die within 90 minutes of exposure to temperature of 118 degrees Fahrenheit and up. In whole room heat treatments, the entire room is heated using special equipment to temperatures between 135 degrees and 145 degrees. The specialist will monitor the temperatures using thermometers placed strategically throughout the house. You should expect the whole process to take anywhere between 6-8 hours. This is not a permanent solution to bed bugs but it will kill them for the time being.

2. Insecticide Treatments

There are three types of insecticides that a professional might use to contain and exterminate the bed bugs. When used together, these products are highly effective and can be combined with other treatments in order to prevent recurrence. For surfaces that are touched frequently such as counter tops, appliances, sofas, a fast acting contact insecticide can be used. For cracks and crevices, a residual insecticide can be used to exterminate bed bugs from within furniture. Dust insecticides are used on cracks, electrical outlets and baseboards to prevent bed bugs from hiding in these areas. These treatments occur 2-3 times to ensure thorough extermination and each treatment can last up to 2 hours.

  2. Be strategic in your packing. Label boxes clearly with their belongings so you won’t spend an hour opening every box looking for a scissor. 
  3. Move large items first and ensure that you are happy with its new location before unpacking smaller items. If you are certain that you don’t want that old bookcase, set it aside and give us a call.

  5. Ask family members and friends to help you sort through old belongings before throwing them out. It’s better to reuse than to just throw away items so make sure that there’s absolutely no chance that it can’t be used again before tossing it. 
  6. Anything that you haven’t used in awhile and can’t see yourself using again in the future should be put aside. Why put effort into moving stuff you know for a fact won’t be of use to you?
  7. Can it be replaced or upgraded? If it can be replaced and you don’t use it very often, put it aside. If it’s replaceable, it can be purchased when you actually need it. If the newer model of the item came out and you find that the old model no longer suits your needs. put it aside.

Until we successfully navigate the solar system and figure out what planets are suitable for life, we’re fully grounded on Earth. The environment is a key topic of academic and political debates but there is one point that we can all agree on: there’s only one Earth and we must do our best to conserve it for future generations unless we find an alternative. The 3 Rs: reduce, reuse, recycle are of higher importance now as we face environmental challenges such as global warming.
Reduce
  • Our homes are often filled with unwanted and unused items that we neglect until we are coerced to sort through the boxes. By reducing the amount of clutter in your home, you can reduce the number of items that may end up in a landfill by calling Cleanout Express. We do our best to reduce the number of items taken to landfills to be disposed of by donating and recycling as much as we can. Landfills are our last resource and we pride ourselves on reducing the amount of unwanted junk taken there. Ask yourself the following questions:
    1. Will I ever use this item again? Have I ever used this item?
    2. Is is sentimental and can not be upgraded or replaced?
  • If the answer to any of these questions is no, it can probably be tossed, recycled or donated. Leave it to us to figure out which option is the best for your items.
Reuse
  • So you’ve sorted through your old box of baby clothes and decide that you can’t bear to part with your precious childhood t-shirts. You can turn them into something new with a few DIY tutorials and have them for many more years to come. The same goes for old furniture as it can often be reupholstered or upgraded to give your home a vintage look. Anything else that can’t be reused should be tossed, recycled or donated in order to keep your home organized. 
Recycle
  • What happens to your items if they can’t be salvaged by you? We take them to a recycling facility where they are broken down and sold by parts rather than as a whole unit. Appliances and electronics can be broken down and sold for parts or scrap metal used to make new appliances.

Advertisements, bills, coupons, invitations, and the mailman comes along with a stack of mail each day. It’s not his fault, but it is the root to your household clutter.

Here are some quick and easy tips to help you sort and declutter your home. You may want to invest in a filing cabinet.
  1. Organize your material to avoid throwing out your cousins wedding invitation or your son’s recent masterpiece: items needing immediate attention (invitations, bills, forms to sign) should go in one file
  2. Important information should get its own file so that you know where to find everything: insurance, recent credit card statements and tax documents, receipts, etc. Think of this file as items you’ll need to access within the year. 
  3. Anything that you will need long-term, or in the far future should get its own separate file: birth certificates, medical records, immunizations, legal documents, credit and mortgage documents, etc. This should be items you might not need this year but will need throughout your life.
  4. Your kids’ artwork should have its own file, closet, or perhaps create a gallery wall in your house. Here you can keep your favorite artwork made by your children. They’ll be happy to know you kept them for so long, but eventually, they’ll want you to let go of that scribble they colored at age 7.

The first step to getting rid of your clutter is to recognize the different types of clutter you have accumulated over the years. There are 3 main types of clutter and once we identify them, we can talk about sorting, donating and moving your clutter.
Look around your living room. Do you have a book on the coffee table that you’ve never opened or running shoes that you have never worn? We often hold onto these items that we never use on the off chance that we will need it some day. It’s not a bad thing but now we have stuff that we do not need that takes up space that could be used otherwise. The what if” of clutter is the first type of clutter that we need to sort through by asking ourselves will I ever use this or is this just a passing trend?”
Free promotional items can be attributed to the next category of clutter: bargain clutter. Maybe you were walking through the mall and some overly excited salesperson convinced you to try a sample of a new lotion. Sure the sample smells great but you can’t see yourself using it without being prompted. As you walk away, they decide to sweeten the deal by offering you a free travel size sample or bag with a purchase. By adding the word free” to the deal, you are more inclined to make the purchase. Flash forward a year later and you have the same lotion and free tote that you have never used. I think it is safe to say that these items won’t be used anytime soon and can either be donated or recycled.
The final type of clutter is sentimental clutter from your childhood or a specific person. This type of clutter is often the hardest to get rid of since you have built an emotional attachment to it over the years. Maybe it reminds you of a loved one who has passed on or something that no longer exists. Whatever the reason, this clutter can be sorted by asking yourself a few questions.
    1. Will I ever use this again? 
    2. Can I use this item to make something else? 
    3. Can you not bear to part with this item if your life depended on it? 
    4. Would you save it if you could only keep 5 items? 
If the answer to any of these questions is no, it can probably be donated or recycled.
Okay so now we’ve sorted through all of the clutter and you have a large pile of stuff to either be donated or thrown out. Now’s the time to give us a call. Fully licensed and insured in New York, we are equipped to provide same day appointments and on-site removal every day including weekends. You do not have to put the items on the curb since we will come in and move it from attics, basements, bedrooms, garages and anywhere else.

We will lift and haul away any items you request and rest assured that the price we initially quote will remain the same unless items are added last minute.

Many people do not dispose of their garbage in an efficient manner. The United States alone accounts for over 220 million tons of waste put into the environment. The solution to this problem is awareness. If you should like to know more information on proper trash disposal, then read on.

First and foremost, do not just dump your trash anywhere. This should be obvious, but it’s the most important rule. Always try to throw your household trash into a receptacle.

Do not burn garbage. When you burn trash, toxic emissions and ash is let off into the air. This is especially true for materials such as plastic.

Stay organized when throwing things out. Make sure you properly sort your garbage into recyclables and combustibles (things that can burn cleanly), but still try to avoid burning trash if you can. Although it is less dangerous than burning other man-made material, you won’t have the proper ways to dispose of the ash left over that can get find its way into your food or water supply if you aren’t careful enough. It’s always better to not take the risk.

Stay vigilant when recycling. Many people will sort recyclable materials fairly sloppily, mixing paper with plastic or vice versa. Keep all recyclable materials separated from one another.

Any natural trash you possess, such as any extra soil or leaves you have in or around your home, are considered compost. Dispose of these materials by simply mixing them with nutrients such as more soil and returning them to the ground outside. Composting is one of the best forms of waste management because it is the safest. There are no risks or dangers that come with it.

For other materials that perhaps shouldn’t just be thrown away into a landfill, such as large plastics, call a rubbish removal company. This one of the more common forms of waste removal from the home, and it’s much more efficient, since they have their own safer ways of disposing of your trash that you won’t have to worry about.

Here Are Some Of The Benefits of Disposing of your Clutter


When you clean your house, no matter the reason, there are many things you can benefit from. It’s more than just simply a clean space. The effects can surprisingly go beyond what you’d think.


Less stress. Relief of the mind is the best kind, and it takes a heavy load off of you and allows for some space to relax. Although we are talking about material things here, it still has an impact on your overall health, and the removal of such things can definitely have a positive impact on you. Even just the presence of clutter in the home can pose a threat to one’s psyche, making it subconsciously more difficult to perform simple, daily tasks.


More time. When you’re not cluttered, you have more time and space to do the things you actually want to do instead of worrying about things you don’t have to. This applies to both the physical and metaphorical aspects of your life, since you’ll have more time to keep yourself at ease. Say you lived in Manhattan, one of the busiest cities in the country.

You’re normally running around, doing multiple things at once. It doesn’t help to have a messy home on top of everything. Moreover, your home represents your lifestyle. is a necessity, and an overworked mind is detrimental to your lifestyle. This is why it’s such a relief when it comes to time for the average person.
You learn. When your household mess is removed, you’re given space in your life to start anew and gain new skills. For example, learning how to stay organized and productive right after successfully cleaning your living space will prevent future clutter from building up in your home. Cleaning your home essentially gives you a clean slate to work with, and it would be way harder to make these changes with the same mess. Having a cluttered space is also associated with procrastination, because it’s something that has piled up after a long time. Being able to rid yourself of procrastination is a great skill, because you won’t be telling yourself you’ll “do it tomorrow” over and over again. There’s a lot more that goes into the art of not procrastinating, but this is a great place to start.

Organize Overflowing Files, Cleanout The Clutter

Advertisements, bills, coupons, invitations, and the mailman comes along with a stack of mail each day. It’s not his fault, but it is the root to your household clutter. Then, your kids proudly bring home their newest artwork creations, and you can’t bear to let it go. Behold, your household contains mountains of papers needing to be filed or thrown away.

  1. Organize your material to avoid throwing out your cousins wedding invitation or your son’s recent masterpiece: items needing immediate attention (invitations, bills, forms to sign) should go in one file
  2. Important information should get its own file so that you know where to find everything: insurance, recent credit card statements and tax documents, receipts, etc. Think of this file as items you’ll need to access within the year. 
  3. Anything that you will need long-term, or in the far future should get its own separate file: birth certificates, medical records, immunizations, legal documents, credit and mortgage documents, etc. This should be items you might not need this year but will need throughout your life.
  4. Your kids’ artwork should have its own file, closet, or perhaps create a gallery wall in your house. Here you can keep your favorite artwork made by your children. They’ll be happy to know you kept them for so long, but eventually, they’ll want you to let go of that scribble they colored at age 7.

Recognizing Clutter in Your Home

The first step to getting rid of your clutter is to recognize the different types of clutter you have accumulated over the years. There are 3 main types of clutter and once we identify them, we can talk about sorting, donating and moving your clutter.
Look around your living room. Do you have a book on the coffee table that you’ve never opened or running shoes that you have never worn? We often hold onto these items that we never use on the off chance that we will need it some day. It’s not a bad thing but now we have stuff that we do not need that takes up space that could be used otherwise. The what if” of clutter is the first type of clutter that we need to sort through by asking ourselves will I ever use this or is this just a passing trend?”
Free promotional items can be attributed to the next category of clutter: bargain clutter. Maybe you were walking through the mall and some overly excited salesperson convinced you to try a sample of a new lotion. Sure the sample smells great but you can’t see yourself using it without being prompted. As you walk away, they decide to sweeten the deal by offering you a free travel size sample or bag with a purchase. By adding the word free” to the deal, you are more inclined to make the purchase. Flash forward a year later and you have the same lotion and free tote that you have never used. I think it is safe to say that these items won’t be used anytime soon and can either be donated or recycled.
The final type of clutter is sentimental clutter from your childhood or a specific person. This type of clutter is often the hardest to get rid of since you have built an emotional attachment to it over the years. Maybe it reminds you of a loved one who has passed on or something that no longer exists. Whatever the reason, this clutter can be sorted by asking yourself a few questions.
    1. Will I ever use this again? 
    2. Can I use this item to make something else? 
    3. Can you not bear to part with this item if your life depended on it? 
    4. Would you save it if you could only keep 5 items? 
If the answer to any of these questions is no, it can probably be donated or recycled.
Okay so now we’ve sorted through all of the clutter and you have a large pile of stuff to either be donated or thrown out. Now’s the time to give us a call. Fully licensed and insured in New York, we are equipped to provide same day appointments and on-site removal every day including weekends. You do not have to put the items on the curb since we will come in and move it from attics, basements, bedrooms, garages and anywhere else. There’s no corner that can prevent us from doing our job so simply show us what needs to be moved and we will take care of the rest. 
We will lift and haul away any items you request and rest assured that the price we initially quote will remain the same unless items are added last minute.
We provide services in all five boroughs of New York City and Nassau County. There is no service too big or too small and we promise to move your items in a timely manner so you do not need to worry about it. Call us today at 718-658-0979 or schedule an appointment on our website!

How to Dispose of Your Trash

Many people do not dispose of their garbage in an efficient manner. The United States alone accounts for over 220 million tons of waste put into the environment. The solution to this problem is awareness. If you should like to know more information on proper trash disposal, then read on.

First and foremost, do not just dump your trash anywhere. This should be obvious, but it’s the most important rule. Always try to throw your household trash into a receptacle.

Do not burn garbage. When you burn trash, toxic emissions and ash is let off into the air. This is especially true for materials such as plastic.

Stay organized when throwing things out. Make sure you properly sort your garbage into recyclables and combustibles (things that can burn cleanly), but still try to avoid burning trash if you can. Although it is less dangerous than burning other man-made material, you won’t have the proper ways to dispose of the ash left over that can get find its way into your food or water supply if you aren’t careful enough. It’s always better to not take the risk.

Stay vigilant when recycling. Many people will sort recyclable materials fairly sloppily, mixing paper with plastic or vice versa. Keep all recyclable materials separated from one another.

Any natural trash you possess, such as any extra soil or leaves you have in or around your home, are considered compost. Dispose of these materials by simply mixing them with nutrients such as more soil and returning them to the ground outside. Composting is one of the best forms of waste management because it is the safest. There are no risks or dangers that come with it.

For other materials that perhaps shouldn’t just be thrown away into a landfill, such as large plastics, call a rubbish removal company. This one of the more common forms of waste removal from the home, and it’s much more efficient, since they have their own safer ways of disposing of your trash that you won’t have to worry about.

The Benefits of Disposing of your Clutter

Here Are Some Of The Benefits of Disposing of your Clutter


When you clean your house, no matter the reason, there are many things you can benefit from. It’s more than just simply a clean space. The effects can surprisingly go beyond what you’d think.


Less stress. Relief of the mind is the best kind, and it takes a heavy load off of you and allows for some space to relax. Although we are talking about material things here, it still has an impact on your overall health, and the removal of such things can definitely have a positive impact on you. Even just the presence of clutter in the home can pose a threat to one’s psyche, making it subconsciously more difficult to perform simple, daily tasks.


More time. When you’re not cluttered, you have more time and space to do the things you actually want to do instead of worrying about things you don’t have to. This applies to both the physical and metaphorical aspects of your life, since you’ll have more time to keep yourself at ease. Say you lived in Manhattan, one of the busiest cities in the country.

You’re normally running around, doing multiple things at once. It doesn’t help to have a messy home on top of everything. Moreover, your home represents your lifestyle. is a necessity, and an overworked mind is detrimental to your lifestyle. This is why it’s such a relief when it comes to time for the average person.
You learn. When your household mess is removed, you’re given space in your life to start anew and gain new skills. For example, learning how to stay organized and productive right after successfully cleaning your living space will prevent future clutter from building up in your home. Cleaning your home essentially gives you a clean slate to work with, and it would be way harder to make these changes with the same mess. Having a cluttered space is also associated with procrastination, because it’s something that has piled up after a long time. Being able to rid yourself of procrastination is a great skill, because you won’t be telling yourself you’ll “do it tomorrow” over and over again. There’s a lot more that goes into the art of not procrastinating, but this is a great place to start.
